Kraken rising in South Florida

krakenMarco News reports a giant squid surfacing off South Florida. Dr. Hiro Tasaki, of the Osaka Deep-Sea Institute of Japan adds meaning with a rather unique historical perspective.

“The giant squid has the largest eye on the planet, about 18 inches across,” Tasaki explained. “These eyes are very keen in dim underwater conditions.”

This is important because… “the moon is now approaching a 500-year cycle, in which our lunar neighbor will be the closest it has been to the Earth for more than five centuries.

The last time the moon was this close and the lunar gravity this strong was around 1509. This cyclic lunar event corresponds directly with the sea monster stories told by the ancient mariners of the early 1500s — exactly five hundred years ago.”

Be sure to read the story for more details.
